“Rugged backcountry trail between Twelvemile and North Basin.”— David Lingle
The trail climbs steeply from Meadow Connector trail through thick timber. The beginning of the trail is marked by a large rock cairn and it climbs up a ridge from there before sidehilling and leveling out.
After crossing a broad saddle, the trail drops steeply to the bottom of the Warm Springs Creek drainage and follows it to connect to the Copper and North Basin Roads at the base of Poison Peak.
The southern end of the trail has several challenging creek crossings. Moose are often seen along this remote creekside trail.
